KKR Silently Enters Into Top Fours

Sidelights:

KKR’s campaign this season was off the mark for sure. Plus their captain Gautam Gambhir was hopelessly out of touch. But since Gambhir made an opening pair with Robin Uthappa fortunes have started to favor KKR. Even Gambhir has scored three half centuries in a row and without getting noticed, the thing which is not at all associated with KKR, they have reached in the top draw of the IPL 7, but they have plenty to do before reaching the safe waters.
